There are many reasons why teeth become worn: age, lifestyle choices, and genetics can all play a role. Worn teeth not only begin to affect overall dental health, but also lend an aged appearance to your smile.
Fort Lauderdale dentist Dr. Charles Nottingham is a nationally recognized cosmetic dentist who has helped many patients restore a more youthful smile by addressing dental problems like worn teeth.
There are a variety of cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatment options available, depending on the severity of tooth damage and your budget. Dr. Nottingham will recommend appropriate options after a thorough examination and consultation where you will have the opportunity to have your questions answered and learn more about expected results.
Treatment for Worn Teeth
- Dental veneers: Dr. Nottingham offers both porcelain veneers and Lumineers, both of which require some level of tooth preparation before the placement of custom matched and fit dental veneers that can provide either subtle or dramatic results.
- Dental crowns: completely covering a damaged tooth, dental crowns will improve the integrity of teeth that may be at risk of loss in the future and can make over your smile.
- Tooth bonding: for minor damage and imperfections that are giving teeth a worn appearance, tooth bonding can be an economical option for patients.
Worn teeth can often lead to more complex dental issues, even tooth loss, if left untreated. Dr. Nottingham is dedicated to helping patients keep their natural teeth for as long as possible because of the additional benefits to overall health and well being.
If you have teeth that are damaged or look worn, schedule a consultation with Dr. Nottingham in his South Florida dentist office.
